not really a showcase, but I wanted to get some Hyperion leds hanging off my access point. I noticed my net gear r8000 with dd-wrt support sharing its USB points over the network with usbip. A quick test with the adalight arduino sketch seems to work great. Hyperiond is running on a ubuntu 16 virtual machine with the adalight protocol talking to /dev/ttyUSB0 Usbip was setup on the r8000 with the physical usb device to be shared over the network: Code: [email protected]:~# usbip list -l - busid 2-1 (0403:6001) Future Technology Devices International, Ltd : FT232 Serial (UART) IC (0403:6001) [email protected]:~# usbip bind -b 2-1 usbip: info: bind device on busid 2-1: complete Usbip was setup on the ubuntu box to bind the remote device that's plugged into the r8000.
